HC Deb 07 March 1960 vol 619 cc2-3W
Dr. Stross

asked the Minister of Labour whether he will give, in detail, the professional qualifications or equivalent academic qualifications in building or civil engineering of each of the eleven inspectors in post, including the seven who work in the divisions or districts, with details of the final examinations passed and the subjects taken.

Mr. Heath

I assume that the hon. Member is referring to the eleven inspectors mentioned in my Answer to his Question on 24th February. Three inspectors are associate members of the Institution of Civil Engineers, three have university degrees in civil engineering and five have other qualifications as defined in the White Paper (Cmd. 9879) on the Staffing and Organisation of the Factory Inspectorate. Precise details of examinations passed and subjects taken are not immediately available but I will write to the hon. Member later.
